You can always bet on the lowest common d(en)ominator.

Probably this is not a very practical idea, but you might consider
adverstising a hi-rez version of your work in the liner notes of the
standard 16/44.1 distribution.

There have always been audiophiles that would buy half-speed master
recordings and direct to disc half-speed masters, and 30ips reel to
reels. They're still looking for something better and they pay a lot
to get it. Problem is, there aren't many, and there are fewer looking
for EA art music. I'm sure they'd be willing to get a broadband
connection and burn their own DVDs if that's what they had to do.
